crimes charges that he's facing. this in a way i think could be a strategy on the part of the defense to maneuver and maybe break it apart. >> cenk: that's interesting. even if you break it apart the prosecution still can pursue the big are charges right? i'm not sure i see the upside of unilaterally giving a plea where you admit to even the lesser charges. >> yeah, and i think you have a valid can certain. i have that concern myself as somebody who has been following this all along. the question is what can you gain. i guess it's just this conventional wisdom that you're giving the judge a possibility that she wouldn't have to handle this long, you drown-out trial that could last all of next year. >> cenk: so what. it's their job. i've been curious about the defense for a long time. the defense does seem to have one interesting idea, which is hey, if you treat someone in a certain inhumane way before you go to trial, apparently that can be grounds for dismissal. is there any chance that will work? >> probably thought but i mean as far as the defense goes, since there is clear evidenc
security and medicare, make some defense cuts if you have to but we'd rather just see the rich get taxed and the near rich get taxed if we have to do that. >> the numbers do not add up, the left is being fundamentally dishonest. they are saying you don't have to cut social security or medicare or medicaid to get the deficit down, all you've got to do is tax the rich some more. they are recklessly suggesting that we go deeper and deeper and deeper into debt heading towards bankruptcy. the numbers, megyn are stunning. we have an unfunded liability for medicare of $42 trillion. an unfunded liability for social security of $20 trillion. and a further 20 trillion for unfunded pensions for federal employees, that adds up to $86 trillion which are committed to pay in the future and the money we do not have. therefore, you cannot just tax the rich to get rid of the deficit. you simply can't do that. the numbers don't add up. megyn: chris, what do you make of this, the president is now going to go out on what looks like sort of like a campaign stop on friday to pennsylvania. he already had this m
's national defense headquarters. a spokesman for the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says this is a terrorist act. this as 100 israeli air strikes have killed more than 27 palestinians. the death toll in eight days there up to 137. the secretary of state hillary clinton is finishing up those direct talks this morning with the palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas. that's happening in ramallah on the west bank. and netanyahu, the prime minister, in jerusalem, another conversation she's having. now she goes to cairo where she's meeting with the egyptian president mursi. mrs. clinton making it clear that she is not interested in a quick fix in gaza. >> the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability, and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. >> cnn reporters flanking the middle east today to bring you the most comprehensive coverage of the crisis in gaza and in jerusalem and in israel. ben wedeman is in gaza city. frederick pleitgen is in ashkelon city. we begin with sara sidner at the scene of that bu
in defense attorney and law professor joey jackson. joey, you know, on the surface this sounds big. almost unbelievable. >> huge. >> how could they have missed this, but i guess the question is if it hadn't been missed, if they had found this, if the prosecution had this in their hands, would it have changed the outcome? >> i think this is what we call outcome determinetive. how powerful would it have been for the prosecution to have evidence the day she went missing of a search that said "fool proof suffocation." i think it's a game changer. it's a huge miss on their part. even more importantly, the defense had this. how could the prosecution not? >> that's right. defense attorney jose baez said he knew about this all along and was actually waiting for it to come up. >> it never did. exactly. so interestingly enough, the question is asked, well, you ho could a defense attorney do that? don't we share information? the answer is yes but no, but here's what i mean. there's an obligation for what we call reciprocal discovery. if i have information, i have to give it to the prosecution so they
with honeywell will get big defense contracts. some former lawmakers including msnbc political analyst ed rendell for full disclosure are on the group's steering committee. the real issue is the position taken by these corporate ceos. joining me now is e.j. dionne, washington post columnist and author of the book "our divided political heart." good to have you with us tonight. >> great to be with you. >> this looks like a publicity tour taking aim at earned benefits instead of corporate welfare. it's like these guys have the power to go out and command the camera and the exposure and to make share case that everybody else is the problem but their corporate welfare. how do you see it? >> well, i tell you, ed, one of the things that really bothers me is when these guys start talking about raising the retirement age and what do they have in mind? they have in mind people like ceos, people like us who talk and write for a living, i hope i'm talking to you for a good long time, but they don't think the about what this means for people who might work on their feet all day at a mcdonald's. i'd like to c
. this is about defense cuts, discretionary spending, and it's about tax cuts. only if the democrats agree to bring in the programs for the elderly and poor and middle class would they become part of the discussion. and there's a strong faction among democrats who are saying do not do that. you know, social security is not part of this problem. so it should not be part of the discussion. harry reid, in fact, has been extremely firm on that. he said i will not be part of discussions that include social security as part of this bargain. so if they stick to that, then they won't be. >> yeah, there's so many moving pieces. susan, today, the president's going to meet with small business owners. friday he's going to montgomery, pennsylvania, to visit a small business that will be impacted. very campaign like stuff. what's he trying to do here? >> yeah, who is he not meeting with this week? that would be congressional -- that would be members of congress, especially those house republicans would be the critical partners on this. so he's trying to take a very different approach than he took in the
president. >> brian: joining us is the navy commander from the office of secretary of defense under george bush. he is jd gordon. is it up to the president to get more involved to tell morsi to stop with the absolute monarch thing. >> i think the president should stand up to the muslim brotherhood and say we will not send aid dollars to egypt. morsi put himself [pwao-fr] the courts and law. it is one dick traitorship replaced by another. we need to get tough on egypt. >> steve: when the arab spring first started people were optmistic and it is not turning out the way we hoped it would. >> no, in 2010 the survey poll in egypt found that 17 percent of the egyptians were favorable to the united states and 24 percent favorable to al-qaida and 60 percent to the islamic brotherhood. if you had general elections and threw out mubarack you would get the muslim brotherhood in charge. >> brian: are you encouraged that the people would egypt decided they would not stand with him. >> this is an encouraging sign. i jipt has mod rate secular parties. we should support them. that's the only way to have c
, a republican nightmare will occur. all income tax rates will go up and defense spending will be cut by 600 billion. other spending, some of it dear to republicans, will also be cut by another 600 billion. the fiscal cliff is much scarier to republicans than it is to democrats. so, the president and his allies must continue to make republicans believe they are willing to go off cliff. senator durbin simply said if we do go off the cliff or the curb on january 1st, we have to be able to quote stop economic growth to prevent us from stopping at the economic growth and hurting everyone. in other words, we have to then quickly craft a legislative deal that can stop the damage to the economy that would occur if we went off the cliff and stayed off the cliff. john boehner recognizes that the fiscal cliff is the president's leverage, but boehner believes he has leverage, too. politico reported this morning president barack obama made a demand of how john boehner near the end of their first white house meeting on the fiscal cliff, raised the debt limit before year's end. boehner responded, quote, t

harrigan live this tuesday morning in cairo. surprise move the israeli defense minister ehud barak announced is he quitting politics all together. this comes after he led that 8 day military offensive against hamas which ended last week in what is a fragile cease-fire. he is 70 years old now. and says he will stay on until a new government is sworn in after the elections. national elections in january. ehud barak is israel's most decorated soldier. he also served as prime minister. barak has been moderating influence with the united states and powers. his decision to quit politics comes at a time of uncertainty with israel. he has clashed publicly with the prime minister there benjamin netanyahu how to handle the threat from iran's nuclear program. folks at the macy's thanksgiving day parade spotted something strange. turns out some of the confetti was actually secret police files. coming up, how social security numbers and info on undercover cops and even governor mitt romney's motorcade ended unraining down ended up raining down on the crowds. second time in just days that a bird
're really going to cut spending? >> i think the spending cuts are on the table now with regard to defense. which i think is appropriate. >> 75% of americans say defense should be cut. you're not going to get a 50/50 compromise here. you get a 50/50 compromise when both sides are equal distance from the american people. the democrats are right there, you have super majorities that say, hands off medicare, hands off social security. defense spending should be cut. i think the democrats are -- there's less pressure on democrats to give away the store here. >> didn't the president, when he tried that deal with john boehner, he didn't he agree to significant cuts in medicare? >> yeah, he did. they were almost there once before. and there are different stories about who moves a goal post in that negotiation, but i would argue. if i were the president and i were going to van, i would say, look, this president has an opportunity right now to shape the future of american budgets, the blueprint for the american economy, and for american spending priorities for a decade to come. in this particular d
. i think they're fine with the sequester, to see deep defense cuts and not actually replace them before december 31. they haven't proposed any. jon: that is going to be interesting if that happens. a.b. stoddard from "the hill." thank you. >> thank you. jenna: now we're going to move overseas and this fox news alert out of egypt where we're seeing new clashes between protesters and police at a massive opposition rally against president morsi there. escalating violence is spreading across the city and much of egypt really for the last five days ever since the president's controversial decree granting himself nearance sew lieutenant power. that is a move many critics say is veiled attempt to turn egypt back into dictatorship. others say morsi is attempting to clean out the old guard and reaffirm a brand new move to a new government in egypt. something we're watching closely in the middle east. with pressure growing last night, morsi sat down last night with a five-hour meeting with the country's senior judges in an attempt he says to diffuse the situation but refused calls to withd

of the doubt when it comes to repeat offenders. the detroit lions defensive taxle ndamukong suh should expect no leniency when the league reviews this play today. suh kicked houston quarterback matt schaub in the groin, at least it seemed that way during the lions thanksgiving day game. good morning, jamie. >> good morning, carol. how are you? >> i'm good. the nfl is supposed to review this play. do you think it's already made up its mind about suh? >> it sure sounds like it. ray anderson, vice president of football operations was quoted extensively over the weekend. he said what you just said. that is that past actions, past indiscretions will come into play. there was already a report from mike freeman of cbssports.com that suh will be sus penlded for at least one game. apparently he did kick him in the groin. i think when you look at that tape and we've all looked at it over and over again since thanksgiving day. he does roll over. it's hard to say he has control of his leg. there's that kind of secondary motion where it looks to me, like a lot of people he intentionally strikes schaub rig
minutes past the hour. new overnight israeli defense minister ehud barak is resigning his post. he says he is quitting politics. he says it's to spend more time with his family. he will leave his post in january. ehud barak's resignation comes less than two weeks after israel launched an all-out strike on hamas military positions in the gaza strip, saying it could no longer tolerate the constant rocket attacks by hamas on his israeli territory. >>> the filmmaker behind "innocence of muslims" the crude anti-muslim short film that ignited protests in the islamic world says he has no regrets about making the film. in written responses, he also told "the new york times" he had no regrets about how he treated the cast, saying they signed contracts that did not prevent changes in the script. in addition the deadly protests the film also read to nakoula's arrest for providing supervised release on a friday conviction. he is currently serving time in jail in los angeles. >> human error is to blame for last week's gas explosion at a strip club in springfield, massachusetts. at least 21 people were

[ scream ] >> stephanie: if republicans captain see their way toward additional revenues then we're better off going over the cliff and readdressing this with a better congress in january. >> it's the republicans holding the country hostage. >> they're saying it's more of a slope where the economic effects will be handled gradually. we're going to have a whole new congress. >> more democrats. >> we have the technology. we can make them better. >> stephanie: we built that. >> yes we did. we gave it a bionic eye apparently. >> stephanie: right. patty will have to move her hair to hear you. >> you said what now, mitt romney's plan? no. no. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: what kind of budget geeks, we just have that sound effect. >> it's come in handy more often than not. >> stephanie: i go like this and you do that. >> that was the bionic man effect. >> stephanie: hers is like ding-ding-ding, like sonar.

side of the border israeli defense forces reported that 30 rockets were fired into their airspace, the israeli airspace from gaza but most of those rockets were then destroyed by israel's iron dome security shield that we talked about here last night. five israelis have been killed in the conflict so far. and while israel still hasn't sent ground troops into gaza, get this. 16,000 soldiers are now standing ready at the border of gaza which, of course, makes tomorrow's negotiations all the more critical. so joining me now for prospective on the conflict is hussein ibish a senior fellow at the american task force on palestine. he's coming to us via skype from pompton plains, new jersey. hussein, welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you governor. >> jennifer: you bet. so what, just to bring people up to speed, what are the palestinians asking for this negotiation? >> well, hamas, to be specific because hamas is not the diplomatic representative. that's the plo but there is this division between the west bank
dome and other u.s.-israel missile defense programs. the bottom line is that is the key here because, as you know, iron dome has been what has been enabling israel to defend itself with all these rockets from gaza raining down. so the promise of even more u.s. aid to grow that system was a big sweetner here to get the prime minister along, trace. >> trace: ed, the president has a complicated relationship with the new egyptian president. >> that's right. president morsey, a member of the muslim brotherhood. there has been lot of weariness about his leadership. bottom line, you will remember a couple of months ago during the campaign, the president said that he wasn't sure if egypt was now an ally. you see secretary clinton was there today though sitting down with president morsey. he has been an important part of getting us to this point. showing some leadership so far though republicans like lindsey graham have trend to cut off u.s. aid to egypt unless he steps up even more. today senator graham, two others republicans said -- put out this tough statement saying, quote: we urge pres
they are not afraid to watch defense spending get gouged and taxed go up on every american if budget deal doesn't satisfy their priorities. in other words, they'd rather walk the country off the cliff than watch president barack obama gave on long-held liberal priorities. to call the republicans bluff on this? >> the progressives are clearly feeling their oats at this point. they are feeling good about the election but i think also obama feels like he gave away too much or was too conciliatory last time around. the last debt crisis we had made the republicans look back. it hurt their image and you can see them trying really hard this time to paint the picture as they are the reasonable ones, it's obama being unreasonable. that said, what we're probably looking at is they are going to kick this can down the road and give us a short-term resolution to get past january and then do this all again next year. >> but at the same time, jared, the public is supporting the progressives or the democrats on this. polling shows this. 72% republicans should compromise. 72% of the of the people polled. 67% wa
secretary of defense instead, i say woe be unto any feasible rival for that gig. somebody who might get that cabinet position ahead of him too. which republicans would please like to happen. and you know what? maybe this is nuts. maybe this is nuts. maybe this is why to simplistic. but maybe this makes more sense than the contention we're supposed to believe, which is that two active investigations, multiple briefings, a statement from the president, a statement from the u.n. ambassador, a closed-door, one-on-one meeting with that ambassador and with the director of the cia have not given john mccain enough opportunity to ask whatever questions he wants to ask about remarks made on a sunday morning talk show two and a half months ago. maybe this makes more sense than that. joining us is somebody more level headed, andrea mitchell, host of "andrea mitchell reports." thank you for being here. >> i love your theories it makes as much sense as anything happening in washington about this potential nomination. >> i wanted you to be here in part because. i knew you would debunk my theory. whic
talk shows leading democrats are coming to her defense saying she relied on the best available information provided by the u.s. intelligence community. >> if this were an nfl football game the critic it is of ambassador rise would be penalized for piling on. for goodness sakes she got the report from the intelligence committee. she duty at this any reported to the public, exactly what we expect her to do. >> reporter: fox news learned that the house foreign affairs committee is seeking a cable warning the consulate could not sustain a coordinated attack and that the staff considered suspending operations in benghazi. mission personnel could go locate to the annex cia outpost if the environment degraded suddenly. there were agreement to formal weekly meetings to the discuss the security environment. in the longer term wee, believe the formal colocation with the annex will greatly improve the situation. state department pending their own internal investigation which we now expect to be completed by the middle of december, jon. jon: lots of questions left to answer. catherine herr
as it is a spending problem. >> we heard so much about sequestration in terms of defense cuts. i get entitlements. i get the issue when it comes to taxes. you look at the amount of money this country spends on defense, is it an area where republicans say we can make cuts there as well if you want cuts on entitlements? >> absolutely. we need to make cuts anywhere we can. there are efficiencies we can find in military spending. that doesn't mean that the kind of sequestration called for by the budget act of 2011 is the way to do it. those cuts fall disproportionately on the department of defense and i think that's a problem. i've got a bill in the form of my cut, cap and balance act of 2012 that makes sequestration unnecessary because there are more cuts, some in defense and others in other areas. i have another piece of legislation that i have not yet introduced but am working on. targeted kus so we don't have to carry out all of the cutting in the area of defense or disproportionately in the area of defense. >> i want to bring in u.n. ambassador susan rice, who has a meeting on the hill in the next
is struck over the fiscal cliff. the automatic spending cuts, defense and non-defense. in the report, educational achievement and special- education programs would be shaved by an 2.3 billion. this was written in september. in "politico" there is an opinion piece by the person who serves on the education board, president of the national school boards association and member of the board of education in kentucky. he writes -- so a little better about money and this conversation we're having this money, ties into the fiscal cliff talks, because defense and non-defense spending, automatic cuts take place if no deal is reached. so we are turning to all of you outside washington this morning. how would you fix your school system? natasha in macon, georgia, an educator. caller: yes. host: what are your thoughts? caller: schools need to allow various ways of teaching. a very rigid process where we are looking for one out, but not allowing different ways to teach multiple varieties of students. host: what does that mean? you have to teach in a certain way because of testing requirements? call

. the leadership there, defense minister ehud barack. is he now quitting. he says he is going to spend more time with his family. his resignation will take effect in january. that's where fred is following the story from jerusalem. first of all, fred, it's kind of funny to hear him say that because everybody it is that, want to spend more time with the family. is there a back story to this, or is that the real deal? >> reporter: is terminal seems as though there is one. it is definitely a shocker here in israel. of course, ehud barack has been part of public life here for decades. he was the prime minister and now for the past seven and a half years was the defense minister. a very prominent person. also, of course, a big military figure here in this country. he says for his part that it is, as you say, for personal reasons. he wants to spend more time with his family. especially his grandchildren. there are many people here in this country who believe that it is, indeed, for political reasons. he is currently really riding a high in public opinion polls after the military campaign that israel w
a nato patriot air defense missiles. they're clearly worried about rockets and missiles coming into turkey from syria from the regime of bashar al assad. how worried should turkey be about engaging with syria in an actual war? >> wolf, the turks are very worried. and the turks are very disappointed. i've spent a fair amount of time in turkey this last year or so. they're very disappointed in washington's abdication. they feel that washington has left them holding the bag. the prime minister has always felt that he had kind of an inside relationship with president obama. but now the turks are left where they are. they are left with this running, shooting campaigns with the syrians. they're left with well over perhaps 120,000, 130,000 syrian refugees and they feel they have been left alone. the patriot missiles are the least we can do for them. >> thank you. >> thank you, wolf. >>> could air travel cost you more if the country goes over that so-called fiscal cliff? up next, the doomsday scenario some experts are now painting. i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. ad
it would only be used defensively. but i see this conflict in some ways migrating towards turkey. today we had thousands of people -- >> last thing turkey wants. >> well, know, it is what is happening because some of the aid for the rebels is coming through there. they now have bases with these patriot missile batteries used to protect the rebel bases there inside syria, but on the border with turkey. got the russians with a warship in the mediterranean. the u.s. has warships in the mediterranean. all of this says to us that this situation is coming to a peak or least our military and intelligence leaders think it is coming to a peak. you have two task forces there and both of them are saying, the americans are saying we are doing this in case we have to evacuate our civilians and the russians are saying exactly the same thing. >> something has to happen. jim clancy, thank you. >>> he was on the run for 14 years. until now. how the feds just caught one of america's most wanted fugitives. >>> plus, not even a week after the cease-fire with hamas, one of israel's leaders calling it quits now
's not vince lombardi. and rex makes it sound like he's won five championships. rex, as a defensive assistant, that doesn't count as a championship ring. but sparano was a bad hire as offensive coordinator. he's an offensive line coach. he's not an offensive coordinator. obviously tebow has caused some distraction. and sanchez, some. >> some. >> some. it's too much. too much. >> sanchez is awful. >> it's going to be a tug-of-war between rex ryan and mike t tanenbaum playing out behind the scenes. >> i think woody would be afraid to fire those two. i think he's joined at the hip with tanenbaum. >> that was a public humiliation, the entire nation watching after thanksgiving dinner, everyone saw that. >> it's the funniest play of all time watching sanchez fumbling, runs into the offensive lineman. it's actually funny. >> it's a broken play. so he misreads the play after calling it in the huddle five seconds before. he gets confused. he runs into the posterior of a lineman. >> it's funny. >> falls down and fumbles the ball! >> the posterior of the lineman was thrown into him by vince wilfork. it'
cuts on the defense side they better be willing to give up on the tax side and have tax increases. i think they are perfectly willing as it stands now to take it off the cliff and let the taxes go into effect, because if the republicans won't give them what they want on a tax rate increase for top earners they think they will get them later once people are outraged that their taxes went up. megyn: but, to not offer any spending cuts, what would be the republican incentive to agree to raising taxes on the wealthy if they don't get anything in return? >> well, the incentive would be from the president's point of view, is that everybody's taxes will go up anyway and once you get to the other side then it's much less likely that you can get a deal done that does anything to protect those folks in the small business owners, or the folks in the lower end there, the $200,000 end of the spectrum. from the democrat's point of view once -- from these democrats points of view, once you've jumped the cliff and you're on the other side it's a question of what republicans will accept. now the repu
aren't going to come out of gaza towards israel. that is their stipulation. we heard the defense minister ehud barak say today that right out of the gate, what they want most likely is something like a 24-hour period where they can see whether or not hamas is capable of stopping those rockets. so negotiations ongoing and we are hearing some more kind of rumors and hopefulness coming out of cairo that perhaps a cease-fire deal has been reached, but we are waiting to hear confirmation from that and secretary clinton. >> how important is secretary clinton in that process, both in providing some calm, relative calm in that there won't be a ground invasion according to a lot of reports while she is there and she can reach out to egypt in a different way that netanyahu? >> well, there are a lot of people in this region that want the u.s. more involved in this process and for the last four years -- well, arguably the last 12, the u.s. administrations haven't paid too much attention to the palestinian be/israel conflict and now you have -- you have secretary clinton on the ground here se
streets, quiet, a sense here there's nothing much to celebrate. the israeli defense minister said this is a cease-fire that he believes will be recognized and enforced but also said, judging by experience, it may not last very long. that's what we have here in israel. skepticism about the cease-fire. great hope it will last. another development this morning, the israelis on the west bank arrested about 55 members of the hamas and other islamic militant organizations in gaza, saying that they represented the terrorist threat and that follows the bus bomb yesterday here in tel aviv. the first bus bomb, first bomb attack in tel aviv in six years. that's a reminder that although israel now has a cease-fire in gaza and everyone's working on maintaining the cease-fire and enforcing it, israel has plenty of other problems, too, it needs to face up with. >> martin fletcher, thank you. >>> back here at home, millions of people hitting the roads, the runways and malls over the next 72 hours. what can we expect from mother nature? meteorologist bill karins has the turkey day forecast. happy
marriage and what does todd akin plan to do next? first, israeli defense minister barack announced he is quitting politics. he served as prime minister and said he will stay on the job until the january 22nd election but would then take time to concentrate on his personal life. there had been talk that if he continued in the coalition government he might succeed netanyahu. remember, in israel to be a prime minister, you have to have lost as prime minister once. back here at home, congresswoman shelly capito will announce she is running for the seat held by jay rockefeller. capito's bid could put pressure on rockefeller who is 75 years old. he has indicated so far that he does plan to run again in 2014. there's always been speculation, though, that he may decide to retire. it's a big issue for senate democrat in 2014. a lot of veteran senators up like rockefeller, tom harkin, baucus, guys there three, four, five terms. the u.s. supreme court will decide whether it should consider legalizing gay marriage nationwide. there are several cases they could hear, some challenging the federal d
takes rice's defense acting cia director mike morell will accompany her on those senate meetings. remember it's mike morell who wrote the unclassified talking points from the intelligence community that rice was briefed on to use publicly for the sunday talk shows. last night on fox news graham said he intends to ask rice some very direct questions. >> she asked to meet with us, and i will listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi. i can tell you this, the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11. the more i look into what they were telling us on the 16th, the 18th, and the 25th, are days after the attack, the more it sounds like a political smokescreen rather than a confused situation. >> mccain told nbc news the following. my concerns are obviously that she told the american people things that were patently false. people don't go to demonstrations with mortars and rocket propelled grenades. ayotte said the meeting is crucial to determine whether rice is fit to be secretary of state. quote, i would hold the n
. overnight we learn that israel's defense minister, ehud barak is resigning his post. that's effective come january. that development comes as delegations for both israel and hamas meet in cairo today. they're meeting with egyptian officials to try to advance those cease-fire talks. and egypt's president mohamed morsi will meet today with judges to explain his edict barring them from overturning any decision that he makes or any laws that he imposes until a new parliament is formed. reza sayah is in cairo this morning. let's start with mohamed morsi, please. >> yeah, good morning, soledad. a few thousand protesters still here in south tahrir squares, especially those who camped out over the past several days, still seeing some clashes. most of them triggered by what seem to be teenagers and twenty somethings out here looking for trouble. we also saw our first fatality of the protest last night on sunday in a northern city where a 15-year-old member of the muslim brotherhood youth movement was clubbed to death. at this point the brotherhood doesn't seem to be using that fatality as a rallyin
